Chick-Fil-A Soup Drive

Buy chicken soup at any Chick-Fil-A in Tyler or Longview. The restaurant will match that amount of soup and donate it to The Salvation Army. It's the second year for the soup drive and the first year for Longview to participate. A spokesperson says last year, Chick-Fil-A provided more than 1,000 servings of soup to The Salvation Army. This year, the Tyler and Longview locations are having a competition.

"Currently, the Tyler stores have served 440 servings, and the Longview stores have sold 230," Barbara Carter, local marketing director, said. "So we're pretty close, and we want to encourage Longview to get in there and help out their Salvation Army, too."

There are five Chick-Fil-A locations in Tyler and Longview, including mall and free-standing restaurants. The soup drive runs until the end of the month.
